To all Family Members:

As number across the province are increasing we are reminding families to stay home, stay safe and stay healthy. We are happy to continue to be COVID FREE at Dufferin Care Centre, ensuring we are staying diligent.

Next week our “Recreation Elves” will be decorating indoors and outdoors for Christmas.

We are still accepting admissions. Please kindly remember if you know someone looking for a private pay suite we will offer a $500 referral payment to families for a long term signed lease agreement.

We are offering scheduled visits to families 7 days a week. We offer Facetime, Window and In-Person. Please kindly send your request for an appointment to have a visit at dcc-familyvisits@retirementconcepts.com or by our new designated phone number if this is more convenient for you, the number is 604-472-4151. Please keep in mind Fran (screener) does scheduling for visits Monday-Friday 9 am- 4:30 pm.

Please kindly note, if you are dropping off food for your loved one, according to Fraser Health’s directive it must be non-perishable ONLY (must be consumed immediately, we cannot store any non-dried goods). Please ensure the non-perishable items have the name of the resident, room number and date it was packaged.

Dufferin Care Centre Covid-19 Trivia:

From last week’s trivia question, “What is a fomite?”

Last week’s question was True or False: “A vaccine stimulates your immune system to produce antibodies, like it would if you were exposed to the virus”. The answer is TRUE.

Vaccines contain the same germs that cause disease, but in a weakened or inactivated form, according to the CDC. The vaccine stimulates your immune system so that after getting vaccinated you develop immunity to that disease, without having to get the disease first.

This week’s question is, “How many vaccine candidates for COVID-19 have been proposed?”

  1. 25
  2. 75
  3. 100
  4. 120+
